Roads have been cleared for public opinion polls in Delhi, demarcation notice has been issued

Roads cleared for Delhi city polls, neighborhoods redrawn: 10 points

New Delhi:
Delhi’s city wards have been redrawn as a first step to holding delayed polls, seen as a test of popularity for the ruling Aam Aadmi Party. The move, opposed by the AAP, is likely to increase the scale of hostilities between the Center and the state.

Here are the top 10 points in this big story:

  1. Rumor has it that the citizen polls in Delhi may coincide with the council elections in Gujarat – an attempt to keep the AAP engaged in Delhi. The party waged a vigorous campaign in Gujarat, highlighting its governance model in Punjab and Delhi, where the BJP came in second in the council elections.

  2. Citizenship polls, originally scheduled for March, have been pushed back, with the Center saying it wants to merge the three civic bodies in Delhi. AAP thinks the BJP played for time because they were so nervous about the competition, because of their crushing defeat in Punjab.

  3. “People are questioning this move. It’s been seven or eight years since the BJP was at the Centre, why didn’t they do it sooner,” said AAP chief and Delhi Chief Arvind Kejriwal speak. “BJP knows that there is a wave of AAP in Delhi and they will lose,” he added.

  4. Before the merger took place in May, three municipal corporations – South Delhi Municipal Corporation, North Delhi Municipal Corporation and East Delhi Municipal Corporation – were under the control of BJP.

  5. The AAP also opposed the draft plan to redraw the wards when it was submitted by the Demarcation Commission last month, calling it “politically motivated”. Arguing that it would create disparities in the population and size of civilian administrative units, the AAP even went to the Supreme Court.

  6. The highest court sought responses from the State Election Commission and the central government.

  7. On Monday, the demarcation committee submitted its final report on the redrawing of the wards of the Delhi Municipal Corporation to the Ministry of Home Affairs after rejecting all objections and proposals. Sources say the committee has received more than 1,700 proposals and objections to the draft report.

  8. After notification by the Union Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Official Gazette, the delimitation will be completed. Accordingly, there will be 250 wards in Delhi’s Unified Municipal Corporation – down from 272 – of which 42 wards will be devoted to Scheduled Actors.

  9. “The 22 constituencies will be reduced by one ward per district by demarcation, but the ward structure of all 70 constituencies has been reorganized in accordance with the draft order,” AAP said in May. before.

  10. “The exercise has been called by experts across the council as illogical, rational and illogical. It has been suggested that the reorganization of the wards according to the MCD delineation could pose a threat to the with the development of the national capital and putting the interests of workers. -class ward in the dark,” the party added in a statement.
